What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Remember, Whatever Happens Out There, We Are Total Prefessionals

It's Administrative Professionals' day, minions, a time to A) thank your professional assistants, and B) force local bakers to write ridiculously long, hard-to-spell words on cakes.

SO LET'S GET TO IT.

Oooh, so close.

If they only had spell-check for cakes, am I right?

Hang on, what's this? THEY DO??

Well, THAT's clearly helping.

 

Hey, I know: why not skip the hard-to-spell stuff altogether, and just get down to the heart of what you're trying to say?

 

...but maybe a little less honest.

 

And less sarcastic.

YES!

 

I mean, uh, no. See, while literally everyone can appreciate a good "assets" pun, today you really want something more personalized to your actual assistant. Maybe start with their name?

[head hitting desk]

 

[muffled talking into keyboard] No, no, see, you need to make your workers feel VALUED and RESPECTED and... what's that? You already ordered the cake? Oh. OK.

I'm sure they'll love it.

 

Thanks to Jenny L., Carrie C., Helene W., John M., Celeste G., Lani R., & Tera L., who I appreciate in a completely non-creepy, totally prefessional way. MWAH.

THE GREAT HUMAN MYSTERY... plus cake!

There is no greater human mystery than our ability to communicate.
To take a picture or concept and implant it perfectly into the mind of another - what wonder!

 

What marvel!

 

Nay, what miracle, even!

 

So the next time you're ordering a cake, minions, just think:

Hey, at least they spelled it right.

Except they didn't.

(But, c'mon, so close.)

That's not what you should think, though.

What you should think is how amazing it is that we can come together as a species through our words and language. That we have this means of showing others how we're feeling, what we're thinking!

And just think: without language...

...this wouldn't be nearly as funny.

 

Thanks to Kim C., Pia F., Taryn, Edie S., & Tony B. for striking out.
